An excellent use of the term “Backstreets” as used in American suburbs | unclassified tempo map of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band 1970s song

There is an enthusiasm throughout that song that though Bruce and his love interest aren’t what we would call today “rich”, life was pretty damn good driving around freely on hidden backstreets at night just being with people you liked.

Yesterday the writers at the Young and the Restless used the American suburb term “backstreets” in a way Bruce Springsteen did when he wrote about the streets of New Jersey.

There is an enthusiasm throughout that song that though Bruce and his love interest aren’t what we would call today “rich”, life was pretty damn good driving around freely on hidden backstreets at night just being with people you liked.

Grey Street | Dave Matthews band | live Central Park | median expected tempo map

The song Grey Street was performed by the Dave Matthews Band in Central Park New York City only ONE time.

The diagram as a median tempo guide is pretty accurate, but you have to listen to the rhythm section groove to “get” the rhythm as a whole.

Eleven years plus since LeRoi died and this song makes me appreciate hime almost more than any other.

I searched in several places online for a way for Jim Deluva and his band, “The Jim Deluva Cover Boys” to imitate the sound to perfection at a bachelor party they are playing tonight.

Jim is in the driveway – cool. I had told him, “Dude, you should have been able to find a chart my uncle posted a long time ago.”

“I know, dude, I know – can’t find it. I want you to listen to the ride pattern on the cymbal I worked out, anyway. It’s 4 over 3s over 4s – kind of a Phil Collins thing – and Roger and Phil never liked each other, so I want you to hear it.”
